"A mind once stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimension." - Oliver Wendell Holmes
Submitted by Barbara Nasralla
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Let it never be forgotten that glamour is not greatness; applause is not fame; prominence is not eminence. The man of the hour is not apt to be the man of the ages. A stone may sparkle, but that does not make it a diamond; people may have money, but that does not make them a success. It is what the unimportant people do that really counts and determines the course of history. The greatest forces in the universe are never spectacular. Summer showers are more effective than hurricanes, but they get no publicity. The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty, and consecration of those whose names are unhonored and unsung.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
"DOES YOUR DOG OWN YOU?"
How many of these statements apply to you and your dog?
You believe every dog is a lap dog.
If you are cold, you put a sweater on your dog.
You have a picture of your dog in your wallet, but not one of your kids.
You often claim that it was love at first sight with you and your dog.
You have your dog talk to your friends on the phone.
You can't fully enjoy yourself without your dog.
No matter how large your bed is, it is not large enough for you and your dog(s).
You spend more on clothes and food for your dog than you do for yourself.
You believe it is your duty to talk to, pat, and even feed every dog in the neighborhood. You know their names.
You let the neighbor dog sleep over.
Your vet and grooming bills exceed your rent.
When you need someone to talk to, your dog is your first choice.
You sit on the floor if the dog got in the chair first.
You talk to your dog when you are driving. He answers.
Your dog taught you to fetch and roll over.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Some of Maxine's Top Tips for Entertaining:
When one hosts a dinner party, it is essential that all the place mats match, or, at the very least, that they all come from the same fast-food restaurant.
A good host must always be a STICKLER for attractive food presentation! I always take the foil COMPLETELY OFF the TV dinner before serving.

What's the difference between a trademark and a copyright?
A trademark is a distinctive symbol or words that identify a product. Once registered it protects the owner from unfair competition as long as the trademark remains in use. For example, if the menu says "Coke" but it's "Pepsi" they pour, Coke will surely hand the matter to Spofford, Whipple, Snodgrass and Snoot for legal action.
A copyright protects the original creation of a writer or artist for a limited time - in the U.S. it's currently for the creator's lifetime plus 50 years. But what constitutes copyright infringement?
In other words, copyrights leave more room for interpretation. And that means more frequent need for lawyers at $400 per billable hour. There's your real difference!
